100% Royal College of Art

This year I will be following 100% Optical's Design Competition earlier in the development stages.  I will share with you the work of the finalists as well as some of the projects that didn't make the cut, as some of them are them really off-centre. Remember last year's projects?

The Eyewear Design Competition was organised in collaboration with the world-renowned Royal College of Art and entailed its students being invited to submit designs for eyewear under two main categories: Couture or Ready to Wear.

From an initial 55 entries across a variety of creative courses, three finalists have been selected for each competition category. Their work will be made up as prototypes by Algha Works in London and will go on show to several thousand eyewear industry professionals at 100% Optical in February 2015.

I will tell you more about each finalist's project soon, in the meantime here is a sneak preview of their work!
